Exploring the Land by Jeep, Part 2

We visit the fabled hot springs, near a very rare inland river that actually had flowing water. Unfortunately, there were a lot of cows grazing there and leaving things behind, so the water was, well, unappetizing. We chose to not swim.

We had to at least visit Cabo San Lucas, at the south tip of the Baja peninsula. Hmmm, we came all this way for KFC and American teenagers? Note the ever-present white convertible Beetle. These cars are still built in Mexico, and are the tourist ride. We somehow arrived in Cabo during Happy Hour, so our two margaritas became four. (No, Laura is not wearing a fern.)

Our campsite that night, 20 miles outside of Cabo. The sea lions on the rock to the right were barking all night, and the sound gave us strange nightmares. No one from Cabo came out here. Our beach was nearly deserted.

Our last camping day was spent relaxing on the beach. Geoff built sandcastles.

Returning to La Paz, and yet another Tecate sign! Omnipresent Tecate ads are found on walls and storefronts just as Coca-Cola signs are found in the U.S.
